Description:
This study investigates changes in women’s participation in the Irish labour market between 1997 and 2007. The period was marked by strong economic growth, rapid labour market expansion, including a large increase in migrant workers, and significant changes in a number of key policy areas (for example, extensions to maternity leave, the introduction of parental leave, and the establishment of the National Minimum Wage). There were substantial changes in the level and nature of women’s labour market participation over this period, and these are the major focus for the current research. The report draws on a wide range of data-sources and research studies to evaluate the nature of these changes in participation, the factors driving change and the consequences for gender equality in the labour market and its wider social implications.
